A wonderful fusion of contemporary and traditional, this beautiful apartment, located in a Georgian country house, provides a relaxing rural retreat whilst being within easy reach of some of Cumbria’s finest offerings.

This beautiful apartment lies in the village of Spark Bridge. Once a flourishing little village of industry, Spark Bridge these days is a quaint and quiet village of traditional whitewashed Cumbrian cottages, which date back to the 17th century. Situated in a great location for those who wish to explore the southern lakes such as Lake Windermere or Coniston Water or if you prefer, the historic Cumbrian villages of Cartmel and Coniston are nearby which offer a range of amenities and cutting edge restaurants and bistros. There is a lovely 20 minute walk across the grounds and fields to the local pub. Situated in an area that has a vast history including some of Britain’s finest literary lights such as Tennyson, Turner and was once home to Beatrix Potter. If you are searching for something more lighthearted, the town of Ulverston is only 5 miles away and is home to the world’s only Laurel & Hardy Museum.

The drive winds through trees and gardens, and you only get sight of the house at the last minute, which is a wonderful sight. Enter the Georgian house from the lower side entrance, where a communal grand staircase sweeps it way up to the top floor. Making your way up, the vast windows let the natural light cascade in whilst letting you enjoy the view. Once you have reached the top floor, two grand columns will greet you. As you enter the apartment, the light-filled hallway is a great place to leave shoes and bags. With a modern open-plan layout, it is easy to find yourself at home here. The spacious kitchen is to one end of the apartment and has an elegant, contemporary feel. The kitchen is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer, which makes preparing your family’s favorite meals easy. After cooking up a delicious meal, you can dine with your guests at dining table which is also situated in the kitchen. The lounge can be found at the other end of the room and offers a wonderful retreat after exploring some of Cumbria’s finest offerings. With muted lighting, soft rugs and sumptuous sofas, this is a wonderful space to kick back and put on your favourite blockbuster movie. Off the entrance hall are the two bedrooms. Both are large, elegant rooms with vast windows which let the morning light flood in. The first bedroom enjoys views out to the main lawn and the bay and has a king-size bed and benefits from an en-suite bathroom with a bath, large shower enclosure, basin and toilet. Whereas the second bedroom has a double bed and beautiful garden views along with an en-suite shower room with hand basin and toilet.

Outside you can find your own private patio area, which is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee or a light lunch. Along with this, you can also explore the extensive shared grounds and find a quiet spot to enjoy a good book.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We have just come back from a lovely week at Summer Hill. The apartment was perfect- really homely and had everything we needed. It's also a lot bigger than it looks on the pictures!

This is a beautiful apartment, expertly appointed throughout, with the best of views through the Lakeland fells over towards the bay. Super kitchen with all the appliances one could need. Comfortable throughout, no expense spared with oak floors, lovely beds and linen. If Lakeland wasnt so beautiful, youd have no problem staying in!
